Aqualine - 1

Be as water -
transparent in thin air - dispersing
like pioneers in Conestoga wagons
heading across the Oregon Trail

Be as water-
latticed in crystal networks - intertwined
elbow to elbow, laced sturdy as willow
now basket, now lifeboat

Be as water -
filling empty spaces - courageous
enough to surrender and plunge
five hundred feet in full song
